Danielle talks extensively about how much she misses her family. She cries in the DR that she's the only person who hasn't gotten pictures or a letter from home, and I'm sorry to be the one to bring this up, but that's partly because she keeps throwing HoH, which means she's picking the game over letters from home, which is perfectly okay, but then please don't sit there all wounded-fawn, unloved-bunny-rabbit about how everybody gets letters from home except you. Roddy and Lisa look sympathetic.
The next morning, the Product Placement Fairy has come back to leave a load of Dunkin Donuts merchandise in the storage room. Again, the thing that looks the most appetizing, by far, is the coffee. You can keep those creepy-looking Coolattas. You could always throw one at an assailant if necessary, though. His teeth would spontaneously rot, and he would be debilitated as he rolled on the ground, clutching his jaw. That would be sort of fun. Marcellas thinks he might name his future daughter Coolatta, which I have to say is one of the poorest ideas I ever heard. Talk about getting beaten up on the playground. But I'm sure her boyfriend Frappuccino will protect her.
When they've given themselves sugar highs to last until Christmas 2006, the houseguests adjourn to the living room to hear about America's Choice. As usual, they are first tortured with the horrible theme music, but then they learn that one of them will be getting a video greeting from home. They don't learn who it is yet, but everyone starts telling Danielle they hope it goes to her.
Amy and Roddy have what may be the stupidest conversation of all time, in which she claims that men and spiders have "venom" in common, and Roddy very foolishly brings up the spinning of webs "that easily fall apart." Amy just picks this up and says that men and spiders both spin webs that serve as traps. Bad move, Rod-man. Walked right into that one. She says in the DR that no one trusts Roddy. Of course, you know why that is, primarily, right? Because Danielle has been harping on it for weeks. She really has done an expert job of getting all these people just obsessed with getting Roddy out of the house. It has essentially protected Danielle from having anyone notice that probably their best strategic move would be to get her out of the house -- this is especially true of Jason, given that -- as I've said a few times -- I don't think there's a chance in hell Danielle will take Jason to the final two with her, because she knows he'd beat her. Unlike anyone else who's left in the game. She could beat Gerry, Roddy, Marcellas, Amy, or Lisa. But probably not Jason. He should have put her up. But that wouldn't occur to him, because she expertly has everyone focused on the giant threat that is the ally-less Roddy.
